Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting. March 6, 2020, after experiencing some abdominal pain and having a colonoscopy, I was diagnosed with cancer, specifically Melanoma of the mucosa. Covid-19 delayed appointments, but we are back on track now with a treatment plan set up. Chemo and radiation start this week (4/21/20), to try and shrink the tumor and surgery to follow. We appreciate your prayers, support and thoughts. We will use CaringBridge as the means to communicate with our beloved friends. #TeamMeredith Romans 15:13 May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as your trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
